of somalia. hillary clinton is giving a news conference, the peg as to why she is speak. as she was speak, she also spoke a bit about the hostage situation under way at this bp facility in algeria that involves as many as seven americans being held hostage. here's what she said. >> i can say that more brudly what we are seeing in mali and algeria reflects the broader strategic challenge first and foremost for the countries in north africa and for the united states and the broader international community. instability in mali has created the opportunity for a staging base and safe haven for terrorists. we had success as you know in degrading al qaeda and affiliates, leadership and actions, in afghanistan and pakistan. we have seen the great cooperation led by african troops through the un mission that you were just discussing in somalia. let's make no mistake. there is a continuing effort by the terrorists whether they call themselves one name or al qaeda to try to destroy the stability and the peace and security of the people of this region. >> she mentioned al qaeda there. a little bit as

all the time. remember the famous picture of chelsea clinton after the monica lewinsky affair walking between her parents to the helicopter? or hold on, let me just finish. and this time before the dnc when the white house released a picture of the president with his two daughters snuggling on the couch, there it, watching michelle obama. look, they use their children for political purposes hen they want. to. >> first of all, walking with chelsea to the helicopter, they were going on vacation. so what are they supposed to do, take her to another helicopter or through the back door somewhere? >> it was the hand-holding and connecting them, rollland. >> okay, so what? if there was a photo and there were no hand-holding then, it's okay? seriously. that is not the same as putting an ad out where you are mentioning the president's daughters. it makes no sense. and again, if you're the nra, you don't have to actually do that. you don't have to go that far. if you want to do that, why don't you say okay, why don't you go to chicago and say how many armed guards are there in chicago's schools

. hillary clinton was there in october and talked about a potential situation with mali which we all know has become very volatile and you have the french who have gone in there which reportedly is why this operation, this kidnapping operation was taking place. the kidnappers said they were doing that in solidarity for their people in mali. they were angry, they said, that algeria was allowing french planes to overfly algeria and go into mali to carry out that operation. now, whether that's true, i mean, it could be, or it could also have been, as some u.s. officials are indicating, kind of a preplanned operation. after all, we understand that these people came in from libya into algeria. and the group, by the way, as we also know, is led by a man who's notorious for kidnapping, he's made millions of dollars, kidnapping, et cetera. >> the news that barbara brought to us just before i came to you, jill dougherty, a u.s. drone, an unmanned drone has flown over this bp air field collecting intelligence information and the fate of the hostages as we await news on that. keep us posted as well.

department under presidents, both george w. bush and bill clinton. why do you make these assertions coming back from iran? did you have high-level meetings in which you were privy to information our state department is not privy to? >> well, we met with a range of people. we met with people from the government but students at the university. we were actually invited by the university of tehran. we met with students, professors. we met with a range of people in iran, and what we come back with is a sense that walking in the streets of tehran, going to the university, going into the marketplace, this is not a country that is on the brink of implosion, that sanctions are somehow going to cripple and force it to concede to american or any other demands. and this is something that when we did the research for our book, we found historically, we have seen american so-called iran experts predict literally since the founding of the republic of iran back in 1979, that this political order is on the brink of implosion or regime change. this is something coming back from our most recent trip to iran.
